Jackson does not provide a tool for generating Jackson classes from XSD or JSON, as JAXB does for a specific XSD.

The JAXB class generator was used to generate a set of classes for the specified XSD schema. For polymorphic types, for example, JAXB provides the following annotation to identify the name based on the name of an XML element.

What I have tried:

    @XmlElement(name = "Dog", type = Dog.class),
    @XmlElement(name = "Cat", type = Cat.class)
protected List<Animal> animal;

Can such courses be offered in Jackson? Specifically, determining the type based on the name of an XML element.

In 20 years, you are the first person I know of to ask anything about Jackson.

Jackson itself is a bit of an outdated concept as it predated OOP, and even the more modern JAXB has been removed from support as of Java SE 11.
